Reporting Bias

Cornell trains students on the importance of reporting incidents of sexual harassment and assault and other activities that impact Cornell’s commitment to diversity

Reporting Bias

Report an Incident

These reporting avenues are for non-emergency incidents or concerns only. 
For emergencies, including safety concerns, call CU Police (607) 255-1111 or dial 911. 
For health concerns, call Gannett Health Services 24/7 at (607) 255-5155.

Reporting, understanding, and preventing unacceptable behaviors such as bias, sexual misconduct, and hazing are essential to maintaining our caring community.  Below are avenues for reporting these incidents as well as receiving confidential care and support if you need it.

Reporting Bias, Harassment and Discrimination

To report bias incidents or related concerns, complete this form or send email to report_bias@cornell.edu (link sends e-mail).  Know that confidential care and support for individuals affected by bias are available.  More information about Cornell’s bias reporting system is also available.  Cornell is committed to maintaining a bias-free climate based on civility, decency, and respect.   

Reporting sexual misconduct

Complete this form or send an email to nosexualmisconduct@cornell.edu (link sends e-mail) if you need to report sexual misconduct.  The SHARE website has many resources to help you get support in the event of sexual harassment or assault.  Policy 6.4 provides definitions and explains the procedures employed for investigating and adjudicating allegations of sexual misconduct.

Reporting hazing

While being part of a campus group can be one of the most meaningful aspects of student life, hazing is often a hidden, but serious problem that undermines the value of these experiences and poses risk of physical and mental harm for many individuals. Complete this form to report hazing activity. Confidential channels for reporting hazing are available on Cornell’s hazing prevention website.

Ask for help if you need it

The Caring Community website will help you locate offices, services, and organizations in every corner of this campus to offer you assistance, support, connection, intervention, reporting, and advocacy. 

For 24/7 confidential consultation with a health care provider or counselor, students may call Gannett Health Services at (607) 255-5155; faculty and staff may call the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program at (607) 255-2673.
